Gameplay


Goal

In the game, you control a shield with only your vision. With this shield you bounce a ball towards the enemy. You score a point when the enemy is unable to bounce back the ball.

You can collect various power-ups to help you reach your goal. Some power-ups speed up or resize the ball, while others change the gameplay dramatically. Play through various levels and unlock new types of power-ups in the process.

Controls

The game uses only your head movement as input controls. No need to fumble around with gamepads or mouse and keyboard. Just put on the Rift and play.

Troubleshooting

The Linux version doesn't work out of the box but there is a workaround (for 64 bits) :
  • download the Unity 4 Pro Integration (ovr_unity_0_2_3_lib_zip file) on the Oculus VR download page ;
  • extract the libOculusPlugin.so from the OculusUnityDemo/Linux_OculusUnityDemoScene_Data/Plugins directory ;
  • create the Plugins/x86_64/ directory in BouncerVR_oculus_v2_linux_Data and copy the file there.
